Watch: Kurt Vile covers John Prine’s ‘Sam Stone’

Vile performed the cover during virtual music festival and fundraiser Love From Philly

Love From Philly, a virtual music festival and charity event, ran this past weekend with artists such as Kurt Vile and The War on Drugs headlining.

A highlight from Vile’s basement performance was a cover of the John Prine classic, “Sam Stone.” You can watch the entire performance, including “I Know I Got Religion” and “I’m an Outlaw” below. Vile plays “Sam Stone” around the 10-minute mark.

Prine passed away from COVID-19 complications last month.

Vile and Prine had previously performed “Sam Stone,” as well as “Speed of the Sound,” together during a 2018 concert in Philadelphia.
